The Year That Made Antarctica

The Year That Made Antarctica

Over dinner in the spring of 1950 a party of scientists produced an ambitious proposal for a global year of science: the International Geophysical Year was born. With a heavy emphasis on Antarctica, thousands of people from dozens of countries came together to learn about our planet.

Edgelands Exhibition

Thu 8 June - Fri 28 July

Alison Richard Building

Edgelands presents the work of six visual artists who explore and document the wastelands and the neglected environs to be found on the margins of urban living. Housing estates, out of town retail parks and industrial areas, these spaces are the great unnamed and ignored landscapes … places where our slipstream has created a zone of inattention and yet where all manner of interest and beauty thrive.

Artists:
Day Bowman, Dan Coombs, Marguerite Horner, Barbara Howey, Lee Maelzer, Sean Williams

Cost: free

Ages: All ages
